What's the story?

Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has come up with a hilarious tweet on Virender Sehwag's babysitting ad.

The Background

In the build-up to Team India's limited-overs series comprising two T20Is and five ODIs against Australia at home, Star Sports has come up with an advertisement featuring former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag. In the ad, Sehwag was seen holding the babies wearing the Australian jersey while reminding the viewers that the Men in Blue would take good care of the Aussies during their tour.

But, it did not go down well as the former Aussie batsman, Matthew Hayden tweeted, #bewarned. Never take the Aussies for a joke Viru Boy, just remember who's babysitting the #worldcup trophy".  

The heart of the matter

Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant who was involved in a lot of 'friendly banters' during India's tour of Australia came up with a hilarious tweet on Virender Sehwag's babysitting ad. Here is Pant's tweet on the commercial featuring Sehwag:

Pant's 'friendly banters' with the Australian Test skipper, Tim Paine made the headlines during the four-match Test series which the visitors won 2-1. Not just Pant, but 'Hitman' Rohit Sharma too was involved in the banters with Paine during the Tests which became one of the major talking points during the series.
